Kogi state governor, Yahaya Bello, has once again proven that he is indeed the darling of Nigerian youths.
This follows some trending images of some of the projects initiated by his administration which has not been brought to the media space until now.
In recent times, numerous projects done by the Bello administration were seen on social media via the verified Facebook accounts of the governor, @Alhaji Yahaya Bello, and Twitter handle @OfficialGybKogi and those of his spokesman, @Onogwu Muhammed, and @Galacticus_O.
Bello who was also a presidential aspirant on the platform of the All Progressives Congress (APC) during the recently concluded party primary was also able to turn critics to admirers with the landmark projects.
Some of the projects which Nigerians on social media are talking about include roads, Ultra Modern General Hospital, the Kogi state Specialist Hospital, Lokoja, the Ganaja Flyover among others.
Reacting to the development brought to the confluence state by Bello’s administration, BoluTife, a twitter user, admitted that like many other Nigerians, he had said bad things about the governor, only to realise that he had been wrong all these while.
“Yahaya Bello waited all these years for virtually everyone (including me) to jam-talk about him. Then he starts dropping the projects one after the other. See everyone turning around to acknowledge his good works and apologise. Cold and calculative guy,” he tweeted.
On his part, a tweep identified as Ogbeni Taofiki went further to declare that the Kogi state governor performed better than four sitting governors of the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
He insisted that it would be hypocritical if Bello is mentioned in the same sentence with some non performing governors.
“Media is powerful! Yahaya Bello is telling his own story the way he wants it told. Sincere people now know you can’t mention Yahaya Bello in the same sentence with Governors without projects. 1 Yahaya Bello is now = 4 PDP Governors.,” he claimed.
MaskUpNigeria on his part believes many critics of the governor would be surprised with the level of his achievement in Kogi. According to him, people did not get to know of Bello’s successes because the governor did not invest in media coverage.
“Sadly, Yahaya Bello did not invest in media coverage. His achievements have surprised so many of his critics. Imagine Presidential Material did all these projects being posted on social media. Just imagine it. White Lion.” he said.
Another Nigerian social media user, Afolayan T N, simply declared that he should now be regarded as a fan of Governor Bello.
Meanwhile, another tweep, Iyalaya @lollylarry1, lamented that the impression given about the governor was quite the opposite of the reality on ground.
He said: “I’m seeing so many projects by Governor Yahaya Bello, but the initial impression of him we had on this app was that he was not doing anything in Kogi state. I’m glad we are wrong.”
On his part, JJB @Chuks_jj, simply apologised to the governor. he said he was wrong to have placed the governor besides others. He added that Governor Bello is way ahead of other governors.
